Allegory of the Earth [A Putto Presenting Grain to Ceres], mid 16th century
Bartsch 2; Massari 99. Initialed lower right: “IBO”. With underscribed partial watermark of a “sun in the circle”. A rich, clear impression impression in fine condition, trimmed to or just within the platemark on the left side, with 1/16″ to 1/8 ” margins all sides around. While Bartsch attributes this print to the workshop of Bonasone, Massari convincingly attibutes the work to the artist.
